The last field in the series resizes. All other fields move the
formatted text up and down through them as needed. The fields also allow
resizing with the right mouse button, and the text automatically
realigns after you resize a field.

I was thinking you would have to use different text fields, but that
awkward.  Do your fields dynamically resize then, so when a person types

new text in a paragraph, the following fields move down the page?
